The Passport of Leo Frank
Leo Max Frank's 1907 passport from the U.S. Government's National Archives and mirrored on www.Ancestry.com
Leo Frank partisans (like Steve Oney, 2003; Lindemann, 1991) have been perpetuating the false claim that Leo Frank was only 5'6" tall, in a failed effort to make him smaller than he actually was in real life, so as to make it seem less like he could have sexually assaulted and strangled the 4'11" and 13-year-old Mary Phagan on Saturday, April 26, 1913, but in real life, according to two reliable sources, Leo Frank was 5'8" tall or 9" taller than Mary Phagan.
The two sources listing Leo Frank's height as 5'8", are his 1907/1908 passport record, and 1906 Cornell Senior Class Yearbook
on page 344 and 345 (available on www.Archive.org).
